February 22, 2017 (Montreal, QC) – This Friday sees doors opening at noon for the 15th edition of the Montreal Bike Show / Salon du vélo de Montréal at the Place Bonaventure exhibition halls. This consumer show includes the third edition of the Montreal Triathlon Show and one admission fee offers visitors access to both.
“Whether you are searching for a bicycle, equipment, accessories, clothing or advice, this is the best place to discover everything there is to know about the cycling world. I’m sold out (for exhibitors),” added Dubé. “There’s no more floor space. But there is still room for visitors.”
Previous annual editions of the show have been used for product launches and team presentations. Typically, there are also product demonstrations, presentations (in French), shows and raffles at the Montreal Bike Show. According to Dube a new Quebec bike manufacturer, Rythm Bikes (www.rythmbikes.com) will be launching at the 2017 show.
One novelty at the 2017 edition includes a 3D Printer Bicycle lights by Créations AB3D which do not need batteries. Another is that tickets can now be bought online, allowing visitors to avoid lineups at the gate.
Ottawa cycling aficionados often attend the Montreal show in great numbers because it is closer for them to get to than the Toronto Bike Show from March 3-5.
